I've been having issues ever since I started playing League of Legends when I was using the TG585 v7. The problem was that every time I started a game my ping would slowly and gradually rise without disconnecting me. I'd start at 150 ping on the NA servers, at 5 minutes it'd be 300, 10 minutes 500, 20 minutes 2000. The way to 'fix' this was to IMMEDIATELY restart the LoL client and then I wouldn't suffer from any lag; not the ideal fix if I want to start playing ranked. I figured it'd be the modem and since it was old I went and got the TG582n.

The problem is that the issue still persists. After jumping over a 101 hoops I figured it was the ports not opening. I know how to forward the ports and I have, the problem is that despite having them assigned and done, websites like still tell me the ports are not open.

I'd like some help please.

If anyone's wondering these are the ports I need open:

In my experience all the Thomson/Technicolor whatever they are called now modem/routers are terrible for gaming due to their NAT implementation.

You shouldn't need to manually port forward anything for modern games, just enable UPNP / NAT-PMP and most games don't even need that and just use pin holing.

Personally I'd replace the device.
